Description

(Despite the above title, this area is for listing ice, mixed and snow routes only, rock routes should be added elsewhere)

This is by far the most visited sector in the Mont Blanc range due to the ease of access by téléphérique from both the French and Italian sides of the range and the availability of superb huts (Refuge des Cosmiques and Rifugio Torino). It can be a safe destination for a day outing or a base destination for multi-day adventures.

Getting There

Take either the téléphérique to top of Aiguille du Midi from Chamonix or the téléphérique from the small hamlet of La Palud just outside of Courmayeur on the Italian side to the Torino hut station.
